This successful and well-known business was started in 1980 by Kevin & Lynne Reids, when they bought a shoe repair business & changed the name to Reids Bootmakers. Daughter Erica & her husband, Joe, bought the business from them 13 years ago as Kevin wanted to retire.
The State MP’s office is 100m away & Reids Bootmakers have repaired the shoes of every member of the seat for many years, including The Hon Ron Davies. Former Premier Geoff Gallop continued to post his shoes to the shop for repairs even after moving to NSW and retiring from politics.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an owner/operator or couple to acquire a long established business with solid profits, a good income and be your own boss!
